WHAT IS ACTIVATED CHARCOAL?
To be clear, activated charcoal is not the same as what you throw on your barbecue grill and light on fire. It’s considered safe by the Food and Drug Administration. At one point, it was considered a universal antidote to help with drug overdoses and to treat poisonings.
Activated charcoal is developed with safe materials, such as bone char, coconut shells and olive pits. Activated charcoal works because it is heated to extremely high temperatures that strip any molecules it may have absorbed before being cooled and powdered.
Activated charcoal is associated with numerous health benefits such as treating hangovers, teeth whitening, expelling toxins from the body and anti-ageing. However, mixed with the other typical ingredients in a lemonade, black lemonade acquires a range of wholesome benefits. We have all had the usual lemonade but have you ever heard of black lemonade? This drink has made quite a furore among health-conscious people and fitness enthusiasts. Black lemonade is dark, sweet and mysterious! It is a refreshing drink that gets its color from its key-ingredient- activated charcoal. It also gives this dark lemonade a burst of health benefits. Activated charcoal is different from ordinary charcoal, which is made with peat, coal, wood etc. The presence of gases causes activated charcoal to develop many pores and spaces, which helps it ‘capture’ impurities and chemicals. Activated charcoal has a porous texture, much different from traditional charcoal. This allows it to trap toxins and chemicals in the gut and prevent free radicals from being absorbed by the body. Here is why you should have Onyx Lemonade

1. Boosts energy
Onyx Lemonade acts as a natural sports drink without the extra carbs and sugars. It supplies various essential nutrients to the body such as magnesium, calcium and potassium. This quality of the lemonade makes it great to have after a heavy workout session. It is especially helpful if you want to avoid drinking a dairy-based post-workout drink. You can also have it to help protect from the harsh summer heat.
2. Removes toxins
Onyx Lemonade is a popular detox drink for all the right reasons. The activated charcoal in the body uses its inherent nature to capture toxins and chemicals in the body and expels them out. It is also rich in antioxidants that come from lemon juice, thus delivering the immune system with the strength it needs to protect the body effectively.
3. Protects digestive health
Lemons are packed in vitamins like B-complex, Vitamin C and nutrients such as iron and fibre. Regularly consuming activated charcoal rich black lemonade can help provide relief from intestinal gases, diarrhoea and indigestion. It also cleans the liver and motivates it to do a better job at clearing more toxins.
4. Helps in weight loss
Black lemonade is packed with fibre pectin, which actively reduces hunger. As a result, it leads to lower overall consumption of calories throughout the day. When the stomach is full for longer, we are less likely to indulge in unhealthy and instant options. Lemon juice is loaded with alkaline, which helps lower cholesterol and supports weight loss in the long run.
5. Cleans teeth & skin
Activated charcoal has long been credited for cleaning the teeth. It also clears impurities out of the skin. Black lemonade can benefit your oral and skin health as it combines the goodness of lemon juice with activated charcoal. Vitamin C present in lemon juice has miraculous benefits for the skin.
(People who are already on medications should be careful when having black lemonade. The absorbing property of the activated charcoal can also reduce the efficacy of certain drugs as it consumes chemicals from the medicines.)
What is coconut water?
Coconut water, which is the clear fluid found inside coconuts, differs from coconut milk, which combines coconut water with grated coconut. Coconut water has a slightly sweet, nutty flavor, and is low in sugar and calories.
However, it also boasts electrolytes such as potassium, sodium and magnesium, all of which help to replenish lost nutrients. What that means is it’s something good to drink after exercise or during a mild illness.
What are the benefits of drinking coconut water?
Drinking coconut water can be a part of a healthy diet as it helps you stay hydrated while being low in calories and being free of fats and cholesterol. Coconut water is very high in electrolytes, which are great for the body
Aids in hydration
While comparable to sports drinks, which can be loaded with added sugars and flavorings, coconut water is low in calories and carbs. Those electrolytes of potassium, sodium and magnesium play a major role in coconut water’s appeal. “Because of the electrolytes some studies indicate that it can help with hydration specifically related to exercise,”
High in potassium
Most people don’t get enough potassium in their diet. The mineral helps remove extra sodium from your body through your urine. Coconut water can even help lower blood pressure.
Preliminary research indicates that coconut water may lower blood pressure in those with high blood pressure.
Low in calories
Other sodas can be high in added sugar, calories and carbs. Coconut water, on the other hand, is lower in calories, making it a good option for those who like sweet beverages.
Free of fat and cholesterol
Coconut water is 94% water and is fat-free and cholesterol-free.
Kidney stone prevention
In the U.S. 11% of men and 6% of women have kidney stones at least once in their lifetime, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. Staying hydrated is key to preventing them. Drinking coconut water, as part of a balanced diet, can offer some relief and help flush your system.
Coconut water may also aid in the fight against acne due to its antimicrobial properties. Research also shows that consuming coconut water may help your antioxidant system by neutralizing the effects of free radicals.
Aids in Bone Health
There are about 19.2 milligrams of calcium in one cup of coconut water, according to a sample analyzed by the USDA. Many people don’t consume the amount of calcium needed, and insufficient calcium levels can lead to issues such as low bone density, bone loss, and weaker bones that can break more easily.
What is monk fruit?
Monk fruit, also known as luo han guo or Swingle fruit, is a small round fruit that is native to southern China. It has been used for centuries in Eastern medicine as both a cold remedy and a digestive aid.
Monk fruit sweeteners get their sweetness from natural compounds in monk fruit called mogrosides.
Monk fruit sweeteners do not contain calories or raise blood glucose like sugar does. When we consume sugar, our body breaks it down into the monosaccharides that make up sugar—fructose, and glucose, uses what it needs, and stores the rest for future use. But when we consume monk fruit sweeteners, the mogrosides they contain are used for energy by our gut microbes in the colon. The majority of what remains is excreted through the gastrointestinal tract and into our urine.
Are monk fruit sweeteners safe?
Yes, monk fruit sweeteners are safe to consume. They are one of eight types of low- and no-calorie sweeteners permitted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)for use in the U.S. food supply. Monk fruit sweeteners were first recognized as safe by the FDA in 2010.
9 INCREDIBLE BENEFITS OF MONK FRUIT EXTRACT
Monk fruit extract naturally contains mogrosides, which naturally makes it sweeter than sugar. This makes monk fruit extract a great sugar replacement because it contains no calories, and has no effect on blood sugar levels.
There are two main potencies of monk fruit extract;
- The first contains 7% mogrosides, making it approximately 7 times sweeter than sugar, and
- The second contains 25% mogrosides—making it approximately 80 times sweeter than sugar.
Here are some of the possible health effects of monk fruit, and more specifically, the mogrosides:
1. Monk Fruit extract is a delicious natural sweetener
Unlike artificial sugars that impair blood flow, the monk fruit extract is a natural sweetener that may support:
- Healthy sleep
- Hormone balance
- A reduction in some depression symptoms
2. Monk Fruit extract is a great natural source of vitamins and minerals
The mogrosides compounds found in the monk fruit extract contain vitamins and minerals that may help your body support inflammatory responses. Also, this magnificent fruit produces vitamin C, which may stimulate the production of the white blood cells, and may boost overall immunity.
3. Monk Fruit extract may help with weight loss
Monk fruit sweetener has no calories, carbs, or fat, which is an ideal nutritional content combination for anyone watching their waistline. In fact, substituting monk fruit sweetener for table sugar can lead to modest reductions in body weight. This is because monk fruit reduces your overall calorie intake. Additionally, it’s an important reminder to consume monk fruit sweeteners that are 100% natural to avoid added sugars.
Using natural sweeteners is a great way to kick-start your weight loss journey. In fact, one study found people who consumed low-calorie, natural sweeteners tended to consume less added fat and sugar in general. This of course, is without reporting any differences in hunger levels.
4. Monk Fruit extract may help support healthy blood sugar levels
Monk fruit extract is a natural sweetener that may improve insulin secretion, and may protect your body from sugar-associated attacks.
Also, if you have preexisting diabetes conditions, monk fruit extract may be the perfect solution for consumption. This is because it contains mogrosides compounds that may support healthy blood glucose levels.
5. Monk Fruit extract may be a source of friendly gut bacteria
Monk fruit extract may support healthy bacterial balance in the gut due to its natural microbial agent and provision of friendly bacteria such as B. bifidum, L. acidophilus, L. salivarius, and L. casei.
The maintenance of bacterial balance may occur because of monk fruit’s possible ability to provide anti-microbial properties. When this happens, you’ll possibly prevent the growth of unwanted microbes within the body.
6. Monk Fruit extract may have anti-aging properties
During the aging process, you are likely to experience tissue breakdown, massive internal stress, and increased inflammation. For this reason, regular consumption of monk fruit extract may prove to be beneficial because:
- The possible antioxidants in the mogrosides compounds could possibly control the degeneration and inflammation of the body cells.
- It provides high energy levels that may support healthy aging.
7. Monk Fruit extract may have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits
A specific type of mogroside called mogroside V is the main component of monk fruit sweeteners. It gives the product its sweetness and may have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
As a possible antioxidant, monk fruit sweetener might reduce oxidative stress in the body, thereby possibly preventing or slowing damage to cells caused by free radicals. Mogroside V, in particular, may be an effective free radical scavenger. As such, it might effectively reduce lipid peroxidation in the body, which has been linked to inflammatory diseases and atherosclerosis.
8. Monk Fruit extract may support a healthy heart
The monk fruit extract contains healthy mogrosides components that may possibly prevent your heart from oxidation of cholesterol in the arteries and blood vessels. This might help in lowering the risk of heart strokes and heart attacks.
Also, the mogrosides component may support healthy HDL cholesterol levels, which is a healthy component for cardiovascular function.
9. Monk Fruit extract may provide relief from seasonal allergies
Allergies in the human body are caused mostly by foreign stimuli, which initiate the histamine response.
Regular consumption of monk fruit extract has the potential to reduce the histamine response to allergies in the same way as the mass cells in your body.
